It probably got 5 seasons when it shouldn't have gotten more than 2 based on the ratings. Sad to see it go. At it's best, it was the sitcom on TV. For me, sadly it was only about half the episodes each season.

Reading this and the ABC thread....looks like I will have some room for some new stuff next season.

I like About a Boy, but it's one of those series that I wouldn't miss if canceled, but will watch when it's on.

Too bad. It was an amusing time killer and was just starting to get back on track after sucking pretty bad the last couple of years.

Oh well. It was fund pretty much while it lasted.

I liked Growing up Fisher. Jenna Elfman brought the show into the ditch, though, IMHO. It would have been a really good show without her.

I normally like Jenna Elfman...but not in this show. I can't put my finger on it, her character just seemed off.

Bummer about Community. Although I'm not surprised. As steveknj said, it already lasted longer than it really deserved to based on the ratings. It kept getting renewed because NBC was in such bad shape and it had things that were in worse shape to cancel.

But NBC will finish this season as the #1 network with Adults 18-49, and that's true even if you remove the Olympics from the calculations. So I guess NBC has decided that it's time to start moving forward with new stuff rather than holding on to these symbols of NBC's own #darkesttimeline.

I strongly agree with this! Jenna Elfman's character seemed like just that little extra that ruined (though "ruined" may be a bit strong) it.

I really liked the rest of it a lot.

I'm detecting a trend here...

What Ereth said.

At least "About a Boy" got renewed. It's like watching my childhood on TV.

I like it too! I always liked Jenna, but I mostly tuned in for JK Simmons. What a drag. I would have kept on watching.

Sorry to be a dick, but I'm glad to see Community go. If only they would also get rid of Parks and Rec then maybe some of their "I'm better than you because I like 'smart' comedies" fanboys will be quieted. Case in point...

People have different tastes in humor. I still can't understand why fans of NBC comedies have such a holier than thou attitude.

Bummer.

I do like About a Boy, but finally gave up on Hannibal a week or so ago. Just got too weird for me.

I had a feeling....

I've been checking everyday for the last week for this news. There were some sites that had it leaning towards being renewed but I just had this feeling it was done for.

I'll miss you Community, you were my favorite comedy on TV and the only show I watched live.

I liked her on Dharma & Greg, DIDN'T like her on whatever show she was on a couple years ago about getting pregnant, and she was decent on this show.

Each season has had it's great episodes, but overall, Community has been going down hill starting with season 2 with only a slight upturn this past season. but I'll miss it.

I'm streets ahead as a Community fan but even I was disappointed with most of the episodes this season. It was time for it to go.
